”I wanted to work in the care sector and train to support people with learning disabilities, but wasn’t sure how I could do it. I originally attended college, but with advice from Care Careers Suffolk I was then able to progress on to an apprenticeship.
I wanted to learn this way because it is a more practical way of gaining a qualification, instead of just reading and writing about it. I have learned a range of skills and knowledge by training on the job which has helped my confidence.
My job is very varied and I support people with everyday living so they can live their lives how they want to. I also assist them with activities in the community such as going to the cinema and shopping, and attending appointments. I find it very rewarding and I definitely want to carry on with this type of care work.”
